Prior to my recent visit I had not been to this restaurant for several years. I really loved the whole experience of my recent visit with two friends. Lovely dining area. Gorgeous food at a very good price and excellent service. Nothing more to say. Please go and try it for yourself.

My daughter and I went for dinner here on a Wednesday evening and we both thought the pub was of the quaint village local type with the added benefit of a good menu and extensive wine list. We chose to sit in the pub itself rather than the restaurant which was very pleasant with a good, if very quiet atmosphere.... More

Following my review on the 8 October regarding poor service at The John Millington, we decided to give it one more chance and I am pleased to report that the service was fine. It seems that the busier they are, the better the service!

Food was lovely but unfortunately the service was a let down, rather unwelcoming which ruined the overall experience. As we had not dined there in a while we asked a few questions regarding the menu which put the person serving us in a mood!!!! Hey ho the food was great. The pub itself is a lovely, just a shame about... More

Went here last Sunday for lunch, that at best could only described as average. On the plus side the pub is pleasant enough and the service and the beer was good, lunch was topped with an huge overcooked cold Yorkshire Pudding that hid a not over generous lunch, The lamb was OK but the quality of the vegetables was, regrettably...

We got invited back due to a bad experience and had a whole new experience. Lovely table, attentive waiting staff - gorgeous food! My two critics joined me (my two children). We're all foodies so not easily pleased but this time was so wonderfully pleasant. Friday fish and chips is definitley worth it!

This is our regular from the office - Every Friday evening, Saturday afternoon & one or two other evenings. I'm told the beer is good but I'm determined I'll get a smile or 'Hello' from the young barman with greasy hair. He's either got an appalling memory or just thinks he's superior. The other barman, bearded & a moustache, is... More
